Keisha Moore led Selma with 22 points in their first area loss of the season.

Selma coach Anthony Harris has said several times this season his team’s biggest obstacle is protecting the ball. It hurt them Tuesday.

“If we would have gotten that one, it might have given us the area,” Harris said. “Now it looks like we’ve got to split with them.”

The Saints (13-5, 3-1) also didn’t help themselves with their work from the free-throw line, shooting 13-of-22.

Erika Lumpkin added 18 points for the Saints.

A last-second shot was the undoing of the Saints in a 56-54 loss to Carver.

The Saints (7-7, 3-1) also suffered their first area loss of the season.

Jamar Sword, who led the Wolverines with a game-high 17 points, sank the winning bucket with 4.4 seconds left on the clock.

Jakobe Shannon led Selma with 16 points, and Deundre Benjamin scored 11. Cameron Turner also added 10 for the Saints.

Selma will be back in action on the road against Robert E. Lee Friday.
